Every Party on Valentines night

More than 150 people of all ages came attended a dinner and social evening in Lisburn Cathedral on Valentine’s Night in support of Love for Life’s EVERY campaign.

This was launched in Connor Diocese in January by Love for Life, whose Chief Executive Judith Cairns attended the event, and also spoke at that morning’s services.

On the evening, a four course meal was punctuated with challenges as entertainment.  These included the vicar being challenged to kiss EVERY adult woman on the cheek within three minutes, the parish’s South Sudan team  having to answer EVERY one of the questions posed about Yei Diocese;  worship leader Grace having to sing EVERY element of the periodic table, and parishioner Tom Stevenson having to make EVERYbody laugh!

Love for Life delivers engaging school and youth programmes to over 30,000 young people each year and works towards the vision of communities in which young people have a healthy respect for themselves, relationships and sex.

The organisation is now offering their most popular programme to EVERY school free of charge. The Rev Simon Genoe, vicar at Lisburn Cathedral, said: “It was our pleasure to share in this event to highlight and support this valuable work.”
